Over a year ago Making Star Wars reported about multiple different vehicles on the set of what at the time everyone thought was for The Mandalorian Season 3, but as it turns out it’s now looking like at least two of the spotted vehicles were actually for use in The Book of Boba Fett.
How is this possible, well if you read the report you will see mentions of vespas on set, and we now know for sure that they were for The Book of Boba’s Mod Squad. With that knowledge in tow, then it’s not too far-fetched to buy into the other spotted vehicle being in Boba’s show, and it just happens to be a Naboo N-1 Starfighter.
According to Bespin Bulletin, this classic prequel era ship will be piloted by none other than The Mandalorian himself, Din Djarin. What makes this rumor feel even more legit is the final moments of The Book of Boba Fett Episode 4, which more or less teases Din’s appearance with a nod to his theme music. BB reported that his source said Mando would show up in Episode 4 or 5, and they were leaning towards 5, so it’s looking very likely that this rumor may turn out to be true.
What isn’t known is how Din got the ship, or if it’ll be his new permanent ride, but based on the MSW leak, and BB’s follow-up, it seems inevitable that we will at least see him whipping a sweet looking N-1 next Wednesday.
Nick and I will talk more about this rumor on next week’s episode of the SWTS, so don’t forget to tune into the Star Wars Time Show on a weekly basis via our podcast platforms or via YouTube if you prefer the livestream angle.
